How many times have you heard someone say, “You aren’t supposed to judge people”, or “only God can judge me” after being called out or warned of the consequences of a particualr sin? Calling out sin is not judgment or condemnation, it’s our responsibility as members of the Body of Christ. And, since we are all sinners saved by grace…


Sin will ALWAYS be called out by ANOTHER sinner saved by grace.


People love to say, “you can’t tell me anything because you sin too”. They will even call you a hypocrite.

Well, all lawyers break the law (they may speed). All doctors get sick sometimes ( they may even smoke, have a poor diet or never exercise), but that doesn’t diminish the professionalism of their advice.

How many people would ignore their doctor’s advice to eat healthier to save their lives just because the doctor was overweight?


God hates sin but loves the sinner.


He expects us to hold one another accountable and warn one another about the consequences of sin.

Romans 6:23  (NKJV)

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the [a]gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Galatians 6:1  (NKJV)

Brethren, if a man is [a]overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

Proverbs 11:30  (NKJV)

30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who [a]wins souls is wise.

Hebrews 3:12-13  (NKJV)

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but [a]exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Warning someone about sin is kind of like a speed limit sign. It’s just giving you the boundaries to avoid the consequences.

Remember, the speed limit sign isn’t judging you, it’s warning you!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
